Mohsin Hamid: The Last White ManFri 9 Sep, 6.30pm
The bestselling novels of British Pakistani writer Mohsin Hamid have captured some of the greatest upheavals of our times to critical acclaim. The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a singularly vivid exploration of post–September 11 politics and patriotism while Exit West remarkably renders the successive fallout of conflict and the refugee crisis – both novels were shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Hamid’s forthcoming release, The Last White Man, follows suit, examining race, prejudice and nationalism in a world where the skin colour of white people everywhere begins to turn dark. Appearing live in person, Hamid shares insight into a lyrical, urgent and hopeful story that asks important questions of racial and social justice, in conversation with award-winning journalist and Culture News Editor of The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald, Osman Faruqi.
